Pros: cost effective, sturdy, matching brick
I bought this 50 gallon Terra cotta rain barrel from rainbarrelsandmore.com. I also bought a RainReserve rain diverter system from rainreserve.com. I connected the RainReserve system to my gutter downspout and then followed the rest of the instructions to connect it to my rain barrel. It relatively simple and took about an hour to setup. The 50 gallon barrel and the RainReserve system are made out of recycled and eco friendly materials. They keep misquitoes, debris, and other bugs out. They also are UV protective so algae does not grow in your water and system.
